At the end of the 19th century, Emilie Bordeleau, daughter of Caleb Bordeleau, decides she wishes to continue her education. She faces great opposition from her small minded entourage, but her spunk and verve win out and she becomes a school teacher. Eventually she falls in love and marries one of her students and they move to Shawinigan and have a whole bunch of children. Though her marriage is based on passion, happiness eludes Emilie, whose husband is an irresponsible lout with a drinking problem. The only job he seems able to hold down is as a lumberjack up north, where his wife and kids cannot follow. Written by <griffe@graphisme.com>

Much more that a soap opera
4 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I loved this series. Though I'm English speaking I have enough French to understand it. (I also later watched the English version with my parents but prefer it in french.)

This series is NOT superficial and unbelievable like soap operas are. My parents grew up in conditions much like this series portrayed, so we all found it very realistic. (My paternal grandmother gave birth to her last four children at home alone.) This series told it like it was for many families in this time period. Many diseases were not curable/controllable, and children died. Times were harsh, people were poor. We saw them as real people with all their flaws. This show spared no punches.

I also thought the entire casting was excellent. Because it was a series there was time to fully develop many characters and I cared about them all.

I have the first book in the series and have finally managed to obtain the series on DVD. I am looking forward to revisiting this excellent series.
